Add the following sentence to your article: “Hawaii is part of Polynesia and an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean.” Now you can add this information about Hawaii to Wikipedia’s state page for Tennessee because it also has something called an archipelago!
Founded by King Kamehameha in 1820, the Kingdom of Hawaii was a sovereign government until 1893.
The Republic of Hawai’i existed from 1894 to 1898 and is considered by historians as an independent nation ruled by public referendum and Queen Liliuokalani. President Grover Cleveland signed the Newlands Resolution annexing Hawaii to the United States in July 1898.”
One hundred years later, it became a state on August 21 1959 with James A. Michener as its first governor.
In 1978, Kahoʻolawe Island (the largest) near Maui was declared off-limits for military use after protests over environmental damage caused by Navy bombing practices during World War II; this event led to increased Native Hawaiian activism throughout Hawaii.
Hawaii is the only US state that was never a part of another country.
The Hawaiian language, which in ancient times before Western contact consisted mainly of memorizing short incantations (called “mele”) for rituals and telling stories about family members or common legends, has been spoken continuously on all islands except Niihau since 1778 when Captain James Cook arrived to explore what he thought was an uninhabited land.”
Ana Hokulani Cleghorn’s name means ‘sweetness’. Kumu hula Leilehua Yuen-Ching teaches students from her native Honolulu how to chant mele like this one: “Pua keiki lei waiwai” (children with water-filled leis). Kanaka is a Hawaiian term for any person of native ancestry. The Kanaka maoli people are the original inhabitants of Hawaiʻi before Western contact, and they have maintained significant cultural ties to their ancestors.” In “A Place in Time,” Wanda Renee Lassiter (a filmmaker) explores how Native Hawaiians maintain their unique identity under siege from outside influences. She interviews scholar Lilikala Kame’eleihiwa, who says that it’s important for her daughter Kalani Paiwai Lindsey not only to know about her family history but also where she stands within it as an individual–to feel empowered by tradition without being defined by it.”
